Demir Pence Korsan Adam (Iron Claw The Pirate) is a wild Turkish movie from 1969. Our hero The Pirate battles a baddie who appears to be Fantomas. There is tons of action- there are numerous fights and even a little belly dancing. The opening scene is not to be missed- a sultry Turkish dancer does the hoochie-koochie while the backup band (who resembles a Turkish Iron Butterfly) plays some great organ-based background music. This movie is for lovers of cult cinema and old Turkish movies. It was directed by Cetin Inanc and stars
Demir Karahan, Nebahat Cehre and Yildirim Gencer. Happily, it's in better condition than most Turkish films. There are two files, one with English subtitles, and one without. Enjoy!

iron claw the pirate
pure bunk and I loved it. Handsome hero, pretty girls, guns that never need loading for some, a bad guy with a kitchen mitt on his hand, killing bad guys so they don't have a chance to come back, a band that was pretty good, belly dancers... I loved it.

Goofy but Entertaining
It's got masks, motorcycles, many manly mustaches, mayhem, music- and belly dancing, too. What more could you want? This is not exactly Citizen Kane, but it's a lot of fun. It's in unsubtitled Tukish, but that hardly matters, really.
